The recent LIGO and VIRGO detections marked the beginning of a new era in astronomy, cosmology and fundamental physics. Breakthroughs in all these fields are expected in the forthcoming years. Indeed the future experimental network will be able to measure a plethora of phenomena that have never been detected before. In this talk we overview the landscape of gravitational wave measurements that we will achieve in the next two decades. Particular emphasis will be devoted to LISA and how we can use standard siren and stochastic background data to improve our understanding of the expansion rate and the particle content of the universe.
